In your sorta-RML, make a sorta-one-cell-table.  This should "sort" it 
because table cells cannot be split yet ;-)

    <h2>This is section 1</h2>
    <p>This is section 1 text</p>

The code will look a bit yucky since you initialise a table with a 2d 
array of data.  And in this case the one-and-only cell should be a list 
of flowables.  Sort of like this
tbl = Table([[[p1, p2, p3, p4...]]])

Good luck,
